Re: “ Has the economy damaged the work ethic? ” In Theory, April 28: Once again I'm amazed that the Rev. Bryan Griem can call himself a Christian. I thought Christianity was about love, empathy, compassion and care for those who are suffering, hurt and less fortunate. Instead we get Griem's Christianity of selfishness and greed when he states,” I tend mine and I reap” or “we Protestants.” He disdains the immigrant and unemployed. To him, it's us against them. What a very sad theology, which is completely opposite of what Jesus taught.

Even after a move to the Santa Clarita Valley made the job much more difficult to pull off, Jesus Osuna said he wasn't ready to throw in the towel as Glendale High baseball coach. "I didn't want to be another statistic," Osuna said in reference to the coaches who served one- or two-year stints preceding him. "The good thing is, I got an opportunity to coach each player from when they were freshmen. I wanted to be there for their senior year, so I made an attempt to come back for

I am learning in life to accept pain as something I will learn from. I realize that most of us are familiar with pain. And as Christians, we are familiar with the fact that Jesus suffered just as we do. Scripture tells us so. Yet, he was without sin — differentiating Jesus (God) from us (humans). When I think of Jesus’ pain, I often reflect upon his physical suffering on the cross and the fact that he was not believed to be the Messiah by so many. But sometimes I honestly think that some minor issue of an emotional nature that I am experiencing may not be familiar to Jesus, that Jesus may not have actually experienced that particular thing.

This year, perhaps more so than in any other in recent memory, people can relate to the desperation of Mary and Joseph as they searched frantically for shelter on the eve of Jesus' birth. No assets, poor, and completely dependent on the generosity of others, they came to rest in a stable, beaten back by the harsh realities of even the small town of Bethlehem. As the economy continues to weigh heavily on households — lost jobs, cut hours, lost health insurance — and with little hope for improvement in the near term, more and more people have had to settle into their own stables and accept the humility and frustrations that come with it. It's the range of impact that makes it all so staggering.

Christ was born into this world as an infant who grew into a boy and then a man. He came to save human beings and in the process mystified all, before and after his birth, and then after his death. This mystery began with Mary, then Joseph, and spread to other family members. From there, news of Christ's birth and life perplexed even the Jews — the very people Jesus called his own. Jesus' birth, life and death were very controversial. Have you ever wondered what Mary must have thought, felt and marveled about when an angel visited her and told her she was pregnant?
